Hitting on Asia's Genderqueers

Gender consists of more than two distinct, opposite and disconnected categories; it’s a rather long male-female continuum with infinite possibilities and ceaseless gradual transitions in-between the two extremes. Genderqueer is the catch-all name for gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine - identities which are thus outside of the simplified Mars-Venus gender binary; genderqueer is not transgendered. There are many proud and beautiful genderqueer people on this planet, especially in South and Southeast Asia where the map is never the territory...

"Gender is like a Rubik’s Cube with one hundred squares per side,
and every time you twist it to take a look at another angle,
you make it that much harder a puzzle to solve..."
